World AIDS Day 2007

Stop AIDS:  Keep the Promise - Leadership

On December 1, communities and organizations around the world will commemorate World AIDS Day.   For many persons, HIV /AIDS continues to result in social isolation, loss of jobs and other financial repercussions, discrimination and a myriad of related health disparities.  World AIDS Day is an opportunity for social work practitioners to provide leadership in the global community’s efforts to stop HIV/AIDS. To learn more about World AIDS Day, go to http://www.omhrc.gov/hivaidsobservances/world/index.html

Social workers should advocate for maximum access to testing, diagnosis, care and treatment for all persons living with HIV/AIDS.  Social workers should provide leadership in advocacy efforts at the local, state, and federal levels to improve the quality of life of all persons living with HIV/AIDS and to protect their civil liberties.  To learn more about social work practice and HIV/AIDS, please go to http://www.socialworkers.org/practice/hiv_aids/default.asp
